Norwalk Historical Society Virtual Lecture on January 20: Connecticut's Changing Coastline

Connecticut’s Changing Coastline - Virtual Lecture

Join the Norwalk Historical Society via Zoom on Thursday, January 20, 2022 at 5:30pm for the virtual lecture, "Connecticut's Changing Coastline" with guest presenter Patrick J. Lynch. Tickets are $5.00 per household and can be purchased here.

 The Zoom link will be included at the bottom of your confirmation email.  It will also be emailed to you 24 hours and 1 hour before the event.

The talk will focus on the “recent” glacial geologic history of Connecticut and its coastline over the last 25,000 years, and how the combination of the underlying geology, glacial history, and later human history all influenced what we see on the Connecticut coastline today. Lynch will also discuss the ongoing issues of natural habitat loss and restoration, climate change, and the impact of climate change on Connecticut’s shores. The lecture will conclude with a question and answer session.
